Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set

Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set includes 5 pairs of 4.5" tips in US sizes 2.5, 3, 4, 5, and 6. The Karbonz needles have the spectacular flex and tensile strength of carbon fiber, the same material used in aerospace engineering, with a warm feel like wood. This set also includes 2 cables (one each of 24" and 32"), 4 end caps, 2 cable keys, and a set of needle size ID tags, all organized in a fabric zippered case. It's best to tighten your needles by holding the base. Click here to see how it's done.

WEBS cannot verify or guarantee that any other company’s needles or cords will work with Knitter’s Pride needles. But if you’ve purchased a Knitter’s Pride product from us, we guarantee the product 100% with our no-questions-asked replacement policy.

The Best Needles I've Ever Used

I love to knit two-at-a-time Magic Loop socks, and I have tried a variety of circular needles from many vendors, including Knitter's Pride (Dreamz, Cubics, Nova Cubics, and Karbonz). Read complete review

I love to knit two-at-a-time Magic Loop socks, and I have tried a variety of circular needles from many vendors, including Knitter's Pride (Dreamz, Cubics, Nova Cubics, and Karbonz).

By far, the best ones for me have been Knitter's Pride Karbonz. The tips are slick, like the Nova needles, but the carbon fiber keeps a nice grip on the yarn, like the Dreamz. I also have a strong grip when knitting and the Karbonz can handle it, especially in the smaller sizes (I've snapped many a wooden and bamboo needle in the past when knitting socks). I just had to have the starter set, and I'm wishing I had just bought the deluxe set because I want the larger needle sizes, as well.

Definitely give Karbonz needles a try. I know they're pricey, but honestly, you do get what you pay for: high quality knitting needles that go above and beyond any other out there.

I love the interchangeable needles I have from this manufacturer, so I was so excited when the Karbonz were becoming interchangeable! I was very disappointed upon receiving this set as the tips were blunt, inconsistent, and tapers short(compared to the other products produced by Knitter's Pride). I do twisted stitches, through the back loop, and these tips just won't cut it. I was so excited to get them only to find that the quality and workmanship has gone down hill(spaces in between joins). Will return them.

      Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set:

      I have used Knit Picks interchangeable metal needles for years and started having problems with the cables coming apart. Time for a change! I have enjoyed knitting with the Knitters Pride Karbonz. No problems with the cables or needle tips. The tips are neither sharp or dull. They are like knitting with wood or bamboo needles. The yarn glides smoothly with a slight drag. I knit very quickly and I'm not sure Karbonz is for me. Karbonz would be wonderful for the beginner knitter! I purchased a size 7 interchangeable needle to round off the set.

        Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set:

        I do like that the tips are interchangeable. There is a small amount of difference in the between the brass tips and the carbon fiber that it grabs the yarn (so the yarn does not slide smoothly), and one of the tips will not tighten (the tip just spins, then will come lose while knitting). I am VARY disappointed with these needles.

        Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set:

        I've become a big fan of Karbonz needles. This was my first experience with an interchangeable set. I've always used Addi Turbo fixed circular but I really like these. Very versatile and easy to carry the set in my knitting bag. I also bought the cubics set as well as the sampler set and extra cord sets so I now have an extensive interchangeable knitting needle set. I even found a Pendleton wool case that holds everything so I'm really "interchangeable portable" now. I highly recommend the Knitter's Pride interchangeable sets that Webs offers.

            Comments about Knitter's Pride Karbonz Interchangeable Circular Starter Set:

            I've purchased several circular needles and other interchangeable, this one wins because you can securely close the needles, they are zipped, and no just folded into place and expected to magically stay in the little elastic holders, the needles themselves are comfortable and easy on the hands. I've placed several cord sizes in the pocket at the back and the whole package is good to go in my knitting bag. I'm currently knitting cardigans with fingering weighted yarn that requires 3 different sizes and scrap yarn for stitch holders, instead I use the smaller cords and the cord ends, for this fact alone I'm loving this kit. (The pattern is Audrey in Unst). I'm a big fan of the fact you can build off this kit, add different sized cords (as I have done) as well as more needles of different material and/or sizes.

              This is so easy to knit with. No long ends of needles hitting the comfy chair that you sit in. Surprisingly it holds fast, and stitches flow easily off the needles, I'm a tight knitter. Most of all I like how compact the set is so I can have a full composite of needles whilst travelling. Just love them ! It's great how you can hold one project with end stoppers,then use the same size needles to quickly finish another project.

                        I started a shawl with a cheap circular needle I had on hand. I had trouble getting the work to slide past the joins. Then the Karbonz needles arrived so I switched over to the Karbonz and the difference was remarkable! No more slowdowns while I gently pushed the knit fabric along onto the needle... I could just concentrate on the pattern and on speed.
                        Don't let the reasonable price fool you, this is a high quality item.
